    I am currently at USC Keck, and I have to say my experience has been a relatively positive one on the floor. All the fellow RN's are VERY nice and VERY helpful; I've noticed this especially when I've floated. There have been some hiccups from an administrative standpoint, but this is also my first travel assignment so I wasn't expecting it to be perfect. I was having issues with an overstaffed unit and being cancelled far over the maximum they are allowed, but when I requested to be transferred so that I could actually work my scheduled hours they were very receptive to it. I too was initially offered 26 weeks, but I requested 13 and they were accommodating to that as well. Going somewhere closer to the beach next, but for a first-time traveller experience, I would say I've heard stories about worse assignments.
